Just wanted to let you know that I scanned a catalog of children's clothing patterns from the [mid?] 60s.

I have a post up on my blog but the images came out too small so here is the direct link to the online album

I scanned them at 300dpi so the details would show well so the images are around 1MB each.

Thank you so much for posting this catalogue. It was so much fun to look through and there is so much inspiration there! I feel such a connection to the styles of the 60's.

Thanks for sharing. I was born in 1960 and really enjoyed seeing the clothing of my childhood. My sister made me a dropped waist dress just like the one in the photo. I loved it!
